In 1946, Lucien Raimbault acquired a well-known vineyard; its terroir was composed of chalky-clay and enjoyed extraordinary sun exposure. The Raimbault family has continuously worked this land, and today the domaine has 40 separate plots of AOC Sancerre vines, all located around the village of Sury-en-Vaux (La Montée de St. Romble, La Côte de la Pointe, La Côte de Sury).
The domaine also makes Pouilly-Fumé, “La Montée des Lumeaux” (acquired 10 years ago), situated in the village of St. Martin-sur-Nohain, as well as Coteaux du Giennois, “Les Vignes du Dimanche,” in the village of St. Père. All of the vineyards are worked in the traditional manner, with great care and attention paid to the vines.
This is a fine, complex wine with notes of mineral, citrus, quince, and honey. Ideal as an aperitif, this wine also pairs well with starters, seafood, and foie gras. -Winemaker’s Notes
